  1. Sir Roger Penrose — The quantum nature of consciousness

    Sir Roger Penrose. Quantum Consciousness Theorist — Co-creator of the Orch OR model of the quantum nature of consciousness and memory. http://GF2045.com/speakers/

    Knighted in 1994 for his contributions to science, Sir Roger Penrose OM FRS, is an English mathematical physicist, mathematician and philosopher.

    The extraordinary scope of his work ranges from quantum physics and theories of human consciousness to relativity theory and observations on the structure of the universe. Penrose is internationally renowned for his scientific work in mathematical physics, in particular for his contributions to general relativity and cosmology. His primary interest is in a field of geometry called tesselation, the covering of surfaces with tiles of different shapes.

    Among numerous prizes and awards, he received the 1988 Wolf Prize for physics, which he shared with Stephen Hawking for their contribution to our understanding of the universe.

    He is the Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, as well as an Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College.

    "There is a current view that consciousness is something which arises from some complicated computation. So we have our computers, and people think that because they can do things amazingly fast, and they can calc…

  2. Roger Penrose: Of Fashion, Faith, and Physics - Science Friday

    An artistic representation of a wormhole, via ShutterstockIn his new book Fashion, Faith, and Fantasy in the New Physics of the Universe, theoretical physicist Roger Penrose argues against the widespread attention given to some prominent theories about the universe, including string theory. Some ideas in physics, he says, are merely fashionable, attracting attention without solid experimental support. He also criticizes physicists who seek to apply quantum theories too widely to the macroscopic world, and takes aim at the idea of cosmic inflation.

  4. IOT: Relativity 06 Jun 13

    Einstein’s theories of relativity transformed our understanding of the Universe. The twin theories of Special and General Relativity offered insights into the nature of space, time and gravitation which changed the face of modern science. It’s regarded today as one of the greatest intellectual achievements of the 20th century, and had an impact far beyond the world of science. Melvyn Bragg is joined by Ruth Gregory, Professor of Mathematics and Physics at Durham University; Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and Emeritus Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics at the University of Cambridge and Roger Penrose, Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford.

  6. Stephen Hawking’s “The Grand Design”

    Physicist Stephen Hawking got the world’s attention a long time ago. The brilliant scientist, trapped in wheel chair and Lou Gehrig’s disease, whose mind encompassed the cosmos.

    In “A Brief History of Time”, Hawking laid out what we knew of the universe in compelling imagery and metaphor.

    Now he’s back, with physicist Leonard Mlodinow, for a cosmic update. Not one universe out there, but many, they say. And no need now for God to explain the origin of everything. Science, they say, will do it.
